Sean Davis wants to see Fulham make the most of any chances created against United: “We showed against Tottenham that we can match the big boys at the Cottage. That’s the good thing about the Premier League, anybody can beat anybody on their day. If we’d have taken our chances against Spurs then we would have won the game, so we need to make sure we’re clinical and put away any openings we create on Saturday. If you squander chances up top, it then puts more pressure on the defence, so hopefully we’ll have learnt our lesson from the Spurs match.”
Remind yourself of our first ever Premier League win over United at the Cottage, with Danny Murphy and Zoltan Gera on target for the Whites.
Claudio Ranieri knows Fulham need to start taking points from the Premier League’s elite if we are to maintain our top flight status: “We have to take points wherever, against I don’t care who. It’s not important the name, it’s important we take points against these big teams. I know it will be very difficult but I believe in my players and I am very confident with them.”

Luciano Vietto thinks that playing at Craven Cottage will give Fulham confidence and belief against Manchester United on Saturday.
Have an early read of an excerpt from Shahid Khan's notes that he's penned for Saturday's matchday programme: “The task we face in the months ahead speaks for itself. No one here at Motspur Park is happy being near the very foot of the table, and it’s the last thing we wanted or expected for our faithful supporters. But, no one is accepting our position today to be our destiny. I certainly am not for many reasons, but first and foremost simply because I believe in Claudio and the calibre of players in this squad. And of the two options in front of us - to concede or compete - the only answer is to compete.”
Claudio Ranieri has called on his players to be soldiers as they prepare for another battle in the fight against relegation: “We know it’s a very, very tough moment. We need soldiers who have to fight until the end. That is my opinion, my philosophy. We know we’re playing against a very big team who are fighting in the Champions League and to be in the Champions League next year. But we are ready to fight in every moment.”
Speaking after winning the Premier League’s Goal of the Month award, André Schürrle reveals his desire to give Manchester United an uncomfortable 90 minutes at Craven Cottage: “We need to work hard, obviously, because they are in very good form, offensively and defensively. We need to work together as a team. We’ve shown we can make some trouble for big teams at home, and that’s what we need to do.”
